The church moved to its current location in 1984 under the direction of Pastor Elmore. The decision to move from the West side of Norman to the East side was a vision God had given to the church body. It proved to be fruitful and fulfilled God's purpose and plans for this particular area. The church saw growth as well as many souls saved. After the passing of Pastor Elmore the baton was passed to another great man of God, Pastor E.K. Jordan. Pastor Jordan continued on with great success and with a vision he began to build onto the church. Different ministry groups were then birthed and planted within the community. Throughout the past three decades the vision and the excitement of God's work is still vibrant.

Pastor Poulin has spent over twenty years in Law Enforcement where he has served in many different leadership roles such as Chief Criminal Investigator as well as Chief of Police. He retired after twenty one years of serving the citizens of Oklahoma to follow the calling of the Lord.
